HAPPY Cover

Who Knew Texas' Greatest Dog Hero was from Southside Place?

Southside presents a children's book, Happy: The True Story of a Stray Dog Who Became a Hero. This illustrated book recounts the story of a neighborhood dog who saved two Darcus Street families from a house fire in 1931 and set into motion the birth of our Southside Volunteer Fire Department. Happy's heroism also earned him the title of Texas' Greatest Dog Hero of 1931.

Pick up your copy of Happy and a "happy in Southside" t-shirt at City Hall.
